Our Vision “To support local authorities and commissioning organisations to achieve maximum social benefit.”
The introduction of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 places a requirement on commissioners to consider not only economic and environmental issues, but also the social benefit of their approaches to procurement.
We provide flexible consultancy services to enable commissioners to maximise social benefit via the procurement and/or planning application process.
Via our team of expert staff, we also support local authorities to audit and record social outcomes. In doing so, we are able to maximise opportunities for local people to develop their skills and increase employment opportunities within the construction sector.
Constructing the Future provided invaluable advice and guidance to support Preston, South Ribble and Chorley Councils to use their powers through the planning system to create employment and skills outcomes. They are now actively engaged in ensuring that these outcomes are achievedCath Burns Employment, Skills and Business Support Manager, Chorley Council
